Persons of Interest Sought for Questioning in Homicide

The NOPD needs the public’s assistance identifying and locating a persons of interest in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred on February 10, 2019 in the 100 block of South Claiborne Avenue.

First District officers responded to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting at or around 7:30 a.m.  Upon arrival, officers observed a black male subject lying under the bridge suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was pronounced dead on scene by EMS.
